8th Grade OWL Student Enrollment
November 11th - March 6th, 2018
Sign up your child for 8th Grade OWL Here
This comprehensive sexuality education program is a unique opportunity for our eighth graders to learn about all aspects of their sexuality; spiritual, physical, mental, and emotional. The class will meet on Tuesday evenings at 6:00 and occasional Saturday mornings, mid October through the first week in March.
The Our Whole Lives sexuality education curricula were jointly developed by the Unitarian Universalist Association and The United Church of Christ. The curricula are based on the Guidelines for Comprehensive Sexuality Education produced by the National Guidelines Task Force, a group of leading health, education, and sexuality professionals assembled by the Sexuality Information and Education Council of the United States (SIECUS). Our Whole Lives covers topics that both parents and students want to have available but schools are less likely to cover.
Classes are taught by carefully selected leaders, trained and approved by national OWL trainers. Our OWL Leaders this year are Rich Young & Megan Anderson

Emergence: Faith in Flux , Living in Process
November 29th, 2017
“Everything you touch you change, everything you change, changes you"- Octavia Butler
This class will explore theology (aka living meaningfully) through the lens of process thought.
Process thought turns on its head many of the classical notions of reality and the divine.
We humans are not things, but events; relationships between atoms and energy that coalesce for a time (don't worry everything else if an event too).
God is not an all-powerful being, but rather a lure towards emergence (creativity and harmony), that we can choose to follow, or not.
All things are interconnected, and we cannot be separated from each other. God is in all events and yet is not reduced to them.
During our three sessions of Emergence: Faith in Flux , Living in Process we will not just think about process thought but try to experience its wisdom and ethical demands.
Our second class will also feature a talk by church member Dr. Matt MacKenzie, Associate Processor at CSU who is as he says a self-proclaimed process guy.
